My Ever After IEC Haul and some fun Mermaid Nails!

 Whelp, I'm still plodding through the giant bag of goodies from Indie Expo Canada 2018!!!  I just want to wear them all right now!  I picked up quite a few from the Ever After table including an event exclusive duo with Rogue Lacquer which had a very limited quantity!  Instead of making you wait here are those Mermaid nails!

Ever After VIP Exclusive Blue Skies Ahead 



 I have been a fan of Ever After Polish since picking up a polish called Mother Of Dragons at last years Indie Expo.  They have it seems the same affinity for flakies that I do.  I have purchased quite a few over the last year so was looking for different ones I didn't own yet this year.  The first that romanced me was the exclusive limited edition duo with Rogue Lacquer.  They had me at 'there were only 20 made for the expo'.   I bought it without even checking them out really, that's how confident I am that I will love pretty much everything these ladies create!  I was NOT disappointed!

Next I purchased two flakie toppers, one that glows purple, Hello Spring, and one that glows with a green, Faith Trust and Pixie Dust.

Remember that stamping tutorial table?  I also snagged these from there when we were dividing up the leftovers! These are neon stamping polishes so I tried them over black and white to get an idea of how well they covered.  I think they all performed great, neons seem to be very tricky to get opaque!

I also picked up an acetone additive to try and a Vitamin E enriched base coat, but the winner for me was definitely the VIP exclusive polish, Blue Skies Ahead.  I love blue polish, I love flakies, I love iridescence, I love a polish that's opaque in two coats... and this is all of those things!  It inspired me to thing along the tropical ocean theme and I came up with these Mermaid and sea nails!

 I don't know about you, but I love when I bring purchases home and don't regret a single one!  I'm happy with everything I picked up and can't wait to see what these ladies come up with next!

Hope you enjoyed this instalment of 'what was in my bag' IEC 2018 edition! ~Kelly
